Colombia 1860 5c Lilac, Stone A, Folded Lettersheet From Giron to Floridablanca, Cancelled by Red Oval Pre-Philatelic Franca Handstamp


| /

Granadine Confederation 5c lilac (Scott 10a) with four margins, paying the single rate for a short distance, on entire letter from the sub-post office of Jiron to Floridablanca. Stamp tied by a fine strike of red 'Jiron./Franca.' oval handstamp. An elusive cancellation, probably unique used on a stamped cover. Minor edge splitting and some toning. A rare single franking with only two covers recorded. Colomphil Certificate 2006, signed Dieter Bortfeldt. Ex. Frolich.
